Trixie – A Broken Pelvis, Needed 8 Teeth Removed and Had an Abscess

2/26/19 – Trixie was rescued by Warren Animal Control. She was taken to emergency and found to have 3 breaks in her pelvis. We assisted with the emergency bill and then had her go to Dr. Natalie Zalac. As you will read, our poor girl had an infection, an abscess, and needed 8 teeth extracted. She will probably need more dental work in the future. Can you imagine the pain this 12 year old had to be in while on the streets. My heart breaks thinking about it. As always, we are committed to Trixie and any help in the way of donations you can make will be much appreciated. – diana

Thank youtrixie 2:26:19“CHANCE: Hey Team, my sweet foster sissy Trixie is home from her dental…whew!!! Poor baby girl 😞 Dr. Z did an amazing job, and she really had a job on her hands. Poor Trixies mouth was horrible! She had 8 extractions, she had an abscess, and a whole lot of infection. Dr. Z said she was for sure in pain. We all know how bad teeth pain can be, and unfortunately these innocent sweet babies cant tellus when something hurts. Trixie has oral stitches and will need 2wks to heal from all her dental work today and then she will go back to Dr. Z for a recheck. Thankyou Dr. Zalac and your awesome staff at Orion Animal Hospital, you all are so amazing & care for these babies as if they were your own. You have no idea how much that means especially when they’ve already been through so much. Thankyou 4 Paws 1 Heart and all Trixies fans & donors.”

Hero – Found in a Cat Community with a Severe Eye Infection

2/26/19 – Hero was discovered in a cat community. He had a severe eye infection and was obviously someone’s pet at one time. It took awhile for him to be rescued but when he finally was, we were able to pay for his neuter, vaccines, deworming, and treatment for his eye infection. Hero also tested negative for FIV and FeLV. He is a very sweet boy. Unfortunately, he did have some scarring on his eye. He is doing great although I don’t know if he has found his forever home. If you would like to check into it, contact Sherry at: ~ diana w:26:19

Roscoe – Adopted

2/25/19 – So happy to share this great news!!! Here was his story when we were contacted:

1/3/19 – Roscoe showed up on a porch in Detroit. He is in rough shape. He has a skin irritation that has caused fur loss, scabbing, and scaling up his whole back side. He has a limp in one of his front paws that seems to be caused from an injury. He has many missing teeth and what is there, are mostly rotten. He is also heart worm positive. And as if that wasn’t enough, he has a large tumor on his back that will have to be biopsied to find out if it’s cancerous. 4 Paws 1 Heart is funding Roscoe’s heart worm treatment and anyone interested in this sweet dog should contact our friends at Rebel Dogs Detroit who rescued him. Please remember him in your prayers. ~ diana

Charlee – Locked in a Room, Not Fed, and His Owner Beat Him

2/25/19 – Meet Charlee. While I was on vacation I received the following message from Craig who we have helped in the past:
“I saved a dog who was locked in a room, not fed for a month, and 2 weeks ago, his owner shook a newborn to near death. They beat this dog and put a cigarette out on his foot. His owner surrendered him to me. I bought him a huge cage and we took him to a dog wash as he was covered in urine and had bad frost bite on his testicles. His feet had spots on them. Since then I have taken him to all about animals for a rabies shot and deworming. We have him eating small meals to bring him back. He’s getting better day by day. He seems super friendly and enjoys everything . It took me about 45 minutes to gain his trust; he was scared and unsure. But we could use some help in his vaccines and neutering. If you can help us we have also been feeding a group of dogs and are planning to catch the dogs. They are real skittish and I can see the one dog is a mother and it’s been living in a burned- out house in Detroit. We also team up with people in groups that need help catching dogs.”

Charlee will be going to the vet tomorrow and if anything further is needed because of his prior abuse to his body, we will be there for him. Thanks to the kindness of Sam’s Club and their employees, we were also able to drop off some food, treats, and a huge dog bed to Craig over the weekend. We have told Craig that is he needs further help, we will be there as long as we have the funds. Anyone interested in adopting his rescues, should contact Craig at: . – diana w:craig 2:25:19 charlee w:craig lester 2:22:19

Chase and Rocky – Rescued at 4 Weeks Old After Their Mom Died

2/22/19 – Meet Chase and Rocky. At 4 weeks old, their mom’s breast “exploded” and the owners were unable to save her. They couldn’t keep the puppies and surrendered them to a friend who fed them “squashed up” dog food with supplemental milk from the pet store. When they turned 8 weeks old, he turned to us for medical help. The puppies received their vaccinations and were dewormed. We have committed to paying for their second round of vaccines and neuter when it’s time. These little guys are receiving lots of love with their new dad. ~ dianarocky w:brian 2:13:19 rocky and chase 2:13:19chase w:kiehler 2:13:19

Thorin – Update

2.18/19 – An update from Thorin’s foster mom:

“I talked to Dr. Wilson, no need for alarm on his eyes, but getting some drops for him to make him more comfortable,
she agreed the steroids and lymphoma can cause the loss of hair, but we have that covered thanks to Rachel. Thank you
4Paws1Heart for being there for Thorin.
Thank you Rachel Gerstner! Thorin can get around and stay warm. Waiting to hear from the vets. Both of his eyes are now weeping with light bloody tint. He is still eating well, wants his love, but it is getting harder for him to get comfortable especially on hard surfaces but that may be due to no fat on his body now. – Patricia”thorin 2:18:19
